Granger Whitelaw: Home!
Finally – a week at home!
As fun as it is to travel and see old friends, meet new ones and see great places, there really is no place like home (Dorothy said it best).
I got home this week after a Red Eye (See below) and I was really wacked out for the whole day. This is strange for me, because I travel extensively and have a lot of energy, but sometimes it catches up to you.. I guess. That and Dennis and his “posse” not letting me get even a wink of shut eye! Anyway, Yesterday I got up after sleeping in, and walked the beach with my wife & 3 year old picking up sea shells and swimming in the ocean. We played tennis this morning and are now heading out to church. Friday was also our 5th year wedding anniversary, so we had the chance to go out for dinner and a movie….something we rarely do anymore.
I also got to see an old friend for lunch and catch up, move some furniture, clean the car, go to Home Depot for some weather stripping and have an ice cream in my favorite chair!
This may not be the most exciting blog entry I have ever written or may write in the future, but ya know what? It may be the most relaxed.
I love being home. I love my kids and wife more than anything. No matter where we are or where we live, when we are together we are home. And I would take those quite moments and chores together over any business deal, far away place, the Wizard of OZ or opportunity….. Because there really is no place like home!
